A delicious twist on the classic Alfredo. Penne Alfredo with Bacon and Sundried Tomato will change your ‘go to’ quick dinner forever – Hungry now
Sometimes your belly just calls for the simple things in life. The simply gorgeously, creamy and flavoursome things that is. Pasta alfredo is one of those dishes that you won’t see being made the same way twice; an ambassador of variation if you will. For me? I like a Penne with some very ‘non classic’ additions. Italians, forgive me.
The other fantastic thing about this recipe is the definition of a quick dinner. You know, there really is nothing worse than getting back from work and having to slave away in the kitchen when you don’t have the energy. On average it takes me around 20-25 mins to knock up this dish from start to finish, prep included. The perfect dinner to add to your meal rotations.

Husband and I made this dish last night and loved it! Will certainly be adding this to our recipe book. Only modification would be to mince or purée the sun dried tomatoes as big pieces aren’t the tastiest in our opinion.
This was so delicious! Recommend using much more pasta though because the servings were small. I cut the tomato up into about 2cm strips
Great recipe base. I add chicken and pulse the garlic, sun dried tomato and basil together before adding as I’m not a fan of the texture of sun dried tomato.
This is really good! I like to purée the sundried tomatoes instead of slicing them. Also sundried tomato pesto works too! Unsalted Butter
Meanwhile, fry your Bacon over medium heat until it begins to crisp, then add your Tomatoes and fry a little longer until they soften. Drain excess fat/oil if there’s too much, add the Garlic and fry for a minute until fragrant, then add the Butter and stir until melted.
